    CultureVerse joins Think HQ

    We are proud to welcome CultureVerse to the growing Think HQ group.

    CultureVerse is an accomplished multicultural communications and community engagement consultancy and has been acquired to operate as Think HQ’s specialty arm for diverse communications.

    Think HQ Founder and Managing Director Jen Sharpe said the acquisition was an important step forward for Think HQ.

    “This is the beginning of a whole new chapter for us. Australian audiences are changing, so if we want to connect with them, we need to change too,” said Sharpe.

    “Given the kinds of social and behaviour change campaigns we work on, having truly inclusive and representative campaigns isn’t a nice to have, it’s a necessity,” she said.

    The announcement comes in the same week Ad Standards launched its campaign calling for agencies to be more inclusive.

    CultureVerse Principal Director Loc Trinh said the joining of Think HQ and CultureVerse is evolutionary for both agencies.

    “This means we’re able to use all the...

    Meet Ed

    Edward Connelly has joined Think HQ as an Account Coordinator.

    Edward, who holds a Bachelor of Communications from RMIT, first impressed the business as an intern late last year.

    So, as the business continues to expand this financial year, Founder Jen Sharpe said Edward was a natural choice to sign on full time.

    “Edward immediately demonstrated that he was a good fit for the business. Not only are his values aligned, but he’s a diligent, efficient worker who has already successfully worked across planning, social media, and public relations,” she said.

    “I’m very happy to have him on the team and we’re all excited to welcome him back.”

    Edward, who volunteers weekly at a homeless food van, said his goal was to undertake work that benefited not only himself, but others as well.

    “I’m happy to join Think HQ where I can do work of substance with good people,” he said.
